Bulldog With Three Legs Finds The Perfect Mom

(RESCUE DOGS/CUTE ANIMAL VIDEOS) French Bulldog Bethanee Hamilton was found abandoned on the side of the road outside Portland, Oregon. She was sent to a local shelter where she flat-lined while undergoing a routine spaying surgery. Miraculously, she came back to life. Shortly after, Pacific Northwest Bulldog Rescue, which rescues and re-homes English and French Bulldogs in need, stepped in and soon discovered that her back left paw was rapidly swelling. It was confirmed that Beth had a cancerous mast cell, and unfortunately the only cure was to remove the leg. By chance, her now-guardian Lindsay, applied to adopt this sick pup in need, despite hundreds of applicants ahead of her in line. Luckily for Lindsay, who is a freelance designer with a flexible schedule, she was the perfect candidate as she's able to provide 24-7 care for this special dog. Adopting Bethanee just a month after her surgery, Lindsay created an Instagram account, "PardonThyFrench," to document Beth's recovery, and the creative adjustments that adapting to three legs would require. Follow beautiful Bethanee on Facebook and/or Instagram, and visit her website, where proceeds go towards the Pardon Thy French Emergency Vet Fund. -- Global Animal

Judge Judy Solves Doggy Dispute In Seconds

(DOGS/PETS/ANIMAL VIDEOS) TV magistrate Judith Sheindlin "Judge Judy" pulled an unprecedented move in her courtroom during a recent episode involving a doggy custody dispute. A man filed suit against a woman, claiming he was the rightful guardian of her dog. The woman said that she bought the dog off the street outside a shopping center (which is, in and of itself, suspicious), but Judy was quick to interrupt. She ordered that the dog be brought into the courtroom and let loose on the floor so he could choose his true companion.  "Madame, listen to me carefully: Put the dog down!" Judy ordered. "Put the dog down." The dog immediately ran to the plaintiff, jumping up on his legs. "That's my dog!" the man exclaimed in tears. "That's all," Judge Judy finished. "Take the dog home." Justice is served! -- Global Animal

Extraordinary Rare White Moose Takes A Dip In Swedish Lake

(WILDLIFE/RARE ANIMALS/ANIMAL VIDEOS) Local politician and nature lover Hans Nilsson has spent three years trying to capture an elusive white moose in Eda, Sweden. He recently got lucky and crossed paths with the rare bull moose, capturing stunning footage of the amazing animal crossing a shallow river and walking through tall grass. Nilsson describes the majestic encounter: “When I shot the video everything fell into place: the location, the light and the calmness. It was an experience to meet such a stately animal up close.” Despite the rare animal's all-white appearance, their white coloring is not a result of albinism, a congenital condition resulting in a loss of pigmentation. Instead, the moose's bright white fur is caused by a recessive genetic mutation that causes the animal to grow white with specks of brown—a condition referred to as piebald. For this reason, there's estimated to be only 100 white moose remaining in the country--a very rare sight, indeed! -- Global Animal

Orangutan Meets Burn Victim & His Reaction Is Incredible

(WILDLIFE/ZOO ANIMALS/CUTE ANIMAL VIDEOS) In a tear-jerking interaction at the Indianapolis Zoo, Rocky the orangutan meets a burn victim and his reaction to her scars is amazing. Upon seeing her bandages, the compassionate animal appears to show sympathy towards the woman. He can be seen gently touching the glass to take a closer look at her scars, and gesturing softly at her to remove the gauze. "The orangutan was completely interested in my burn scars and recent surgery sights," Darci Miller said. Orangutans share 97 percent of humans’ DNA, so it comes as no surprise that they also share our ability to be compassionate. "I am a burn survivor from 2015, yes it has it ups and downs, but this particular day made me feel really good about myself," Miller continued. -- Global Animal
